It is not remarkable to say that human beings, even human beings who are family and who love one another, may disagree from time to time. Sometimes, those arguments may be heated. What is remarkable (in a good way) is that we as a society have come to the agreement that we have the right to not have our arguments and disputes come to blows: physical and terroristic violence are prohibited by the law. We have the misfortune, however, to also live in a society where a percentage of our fellow citizens find it difficult to control their own anger and jealously toward their intimate partners. There is, in fact, no talking to some people — and the criminal law prohibiting their violent behavior is to blunt and slow an instrument to be effective in protecting victims of domestic violence. Domestic abuse protection orders exist to address this deficiency.

If you are the victim of domestic violence, you may obtain a protection order with relative ease. From the time you walk through the courthouse doors, to the filling out of form affidavits, to a judge reviewing your request, usually takes less than 45 minutes: a swift, strong remedy to an urgent, difficult problem.

If you are the subject of a protection order, you also have rights. Like those unfortunate characters who can't keep their hands off of their intimate partners, certain other of our fellow human beings will use this very system to effect violence upon their significant other, using the power of the domestic abuse protection order as their instrument of "abuse."

If you are the subject of a protection order based upon false allegations, you are no less the victim of abuse had you been punched in the face.

At Higgins Law, we have two decades of experience protecting the victims of domestic violence and those falsely accused of domestic violence.

As a legal action, an order of protection carries significant penalties if it is violated. Whether the order is desired for protection against a spouse, boyfriend or girlfriend, parent or neighbor, we encourage you to contact a skilled attorney immediately. The legal process can be complex and frustrating for those who are not familiar with procedures. We will help you get the protection you deserve.
